While Rockville High School in Maryland is dealing with a backlash against illegal immigrants sheltered within the district after a horrifying rape in a school restroom, ABC News reports that a California school is tackling a very different problem in the girls’ restroom at Laguna Hills High School: self-esteem.
The project was the idea of a member of the school’s Kindness Club and involved plastering messages such as, “You are beautiful” and “You are enough,” in the school bathroom. The signs even cover the mirrors, so that girls see messages of positivity rather than their reflections.
A high school in California has done away with mirrors in its girls' bathroom and substituted signs of affirmation. https://t.co/007F2zbNnG pic.twitter.com/DmJnnY0nuE

@ABC They're going to need it after being mocked for having lipstick on their face that they didn't notice because THEY DON'T HAVE ANY MIRRORS.

“The signs have helped people remember that everyone is beautiful, everyone is important, everyone is good enough, and everyone should be treated equally,” said Sabrina Astle, 17. “I did this because I am passionate about the fact that everyone is important and everyone needs to be cared for.”
That affirmation will work great when you have something in your teeth. https://t.co/s4gfwTcm21

@DLoesch This is a prime example of how to build a snowflake!

@DLoesch The REAL world is going to punch these snowflakes square in the mouth, and they won't have any place to go cry! GROW THE HELL UP!

@ABC Yet another scheme to disconnect them even more from realty.
When reality finally hits them the world won't provide fetal position pillows

@ABC Because mirrors are nihilistic tools of oppression & serve no functional purpose other than plastic judgement, just like logic in feminists

@DLoesch Wait a second. Don't boys need signs of affirmation? What about transgender.
— Dana Maddox (@dmaddox1632) April 4, 2017
@ABC Boys need no affirmation? What about boys who think they are girls & vice versa? Someone needs to sue over this discrimination.

@DLoesch Hundreds of teenage girls in a building without mirrors? This is a recipe for anarchy.

@DLoesch What about a teenager's fundamental right to take ridiculous bathroom mirror selfies?

@susan_sense @DLoesch Every girl will be carrying her own mirror, unless they outlaw that too. ??♀️
